About the event

The event takes place at Dorney Lake, Eton (a leading venue for Senior and Elite triathlon events) giving young people the opportunity to feel what it is like to compete on a grand stage. Dorney Lake was the venue for the rowing and kayak events in the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012.

The biking and running are all on closed roads so there’s no worry about traffic. All participants are considered winners for taking part and taking on the prospect of a 100, 200, 300 or 400m open water swim followed by a 1.5, 3, 5.3 or 10.6km bike ride and 600m, 1, 1.8 or 2.5km run.

The LittleLife Scootathlon is a mini fun triathlon children between the ages of 4 and 8 where they scoot, bike and run. Boys will race with Girls at the same time in various age categories.

Human Race triathlons and duathlons are governed by the British Triathlon Federation. All entrants are required to abide by all applicable British Triathlon rules and regulations.

The relevant rules and regulations can be read in the BTF Rulebook.


If you are not a current member of Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland or the Welsh Triathlon Association, you will be liable to pay a£3 day membership fee at registration. Regret cash only, no credit cards. Please show your race licence at registration.


British Triathlon Rule Number 8.1 states “Any equipment that acts as an impediment to hearing or concentration is prohibited from use during an event (including transition). This includes, but is not limited to, mobile telephones (which should be switched off if stored in transition), personal stereos and MP3 players.”


We are often asked if wetsuits have to be worn at our events. But the wearing of wetsuits in triathlon is governed by British Triathlon rules and is totally dependent on water temperature one hour before the start of the event. Read the wetsuit rule for triathlons HERE.



These results are provisional, and any queries should be sent to our Results Crew. These are compiled and any changes are shown in the final results here around a week after the event. If you are looking for results from previous years, please visit the main Human Race Results page.



Adventure-Wetsuit-Front-1000We’ve teamed up with Zone3 to offer you their specially designed children’s Adventure wetsuit for a special discounted price of just £92.65 (15% off RRP). The Adventure wetsuit is designed with a lot of the features used in the adult collection but with some slight changes to make them more specific for age range. The suit features:

  • Super stretch 2mm shoulder and arm panels for comfortable and energy efficient swimming.
  • Zone3’s trademark Silicone coated ‘Pro-Speed CuffsTM’ on the arm and legs cuffs to help increase speed of removal. The suit is design to go on easy and come off easy.
  • Bright coloured arm and leg cuffs for improved visibility in the water.
  • 3mm front body and leg panels rather than the traditional 4-5mm adult suits as children have a better natural buoyancy than adults.
  • Low and comfortable neckline.
  • Fully Stitched and Glue Bonded for increased flexibility and comfort.
  • High quality YKK downwards zipper making the suit easy to take on and off.
  • Fabric designed to be more durable than a high end wetsuit so the suit can last a number of seasons or be passed on to somebody younger once it’s been grown out of.

To get your brand new children’s wetsuit simply enter the discount code ‘supertri15’ at the checkout on the Zone3 website.

If you’ve grown out of the children’s Adventure wetsuit, you can purchase or hire an adult wetsuit for the event. The options are:

  • Purchasing an Advance (£159) or Aspire (£299) wetsuit from the Human Race Shop
  • Hiring a wetsuit for the season (25th March – 7th October 2016) from the Human Race Shop


We are often asked if wetsuits have to be worn at our events. But the wearing of wetsuits in triathlon is governed by British Triathlon rules and is totally dependent on water temperature one hour before the start of the event.

Water Temperature Wetsuit Rule
Water Temp less than 14 degrees Wetsuits are COMPULSORY
Water temp 14 – 22 degrees Wetsuits are OPTIONAL
Water temp above 22 degrees Wetsuits are BANNED

We do say that wetsuits in fact help with buoyancy and warmth, so we strongly recommend that you wear one if they are optional. We will keep you updated with water temperature as we get closer to the event but at Dorney Lake it is almost always an optional wetsuit swim.


Micro Scooters are thrilled to support the Human Race Scootathlons and be at the heart of the family fun. We are proud to be providing adult scooters for the adult and child relay race and a fancy dress zone! We wish everyone taking part the very best of scooting luck!
